The Bat - Voyager edition...

Poco Systems also make MyInfoToGo - It's a version of Pocomail I believe with added organizer functions.

My first choice would be InScribe, but also Koma-Mail is a good program.

Other great portable email clients:
- Popcorn (www.ultrafunk.com/products/popcorn/)
- si.Mail (http://simail.sourceforge.net/)

I always go to www.portableapps.com to find "x-on-a-stick". It's all open source s/w, tweaked to run from a USB drive.

Pimmy from the last page of the portable apps page PhilB66 posted above.  See also Geminisoft Pimmy review by Allen, a man who knows a thing or two about e-mail clients.

I really like the Mobility Email client. It's a rebranded Thunderbird.

PopCorn may also come handy; it's a very very small email client for some quick mailing needs.

Bye!

While  www.portableapps.com is OK, it updates slowly.  Try http://www.winpenpack.com/
Much more active, and don't let the italian put you off.  Just switch to english, upper right.  Offers a number of e-mail clients for you to try.  Also menu system is much better than portableapps.

if you need a POP email client, and a ton more, try the one included with Floppy Office. (it's nPOPuk)

Quote
NPopUK  is a full featured email client (a far improved version of the brilliant nPOP itself), which as it is, can almost replace MS Outlook Express. It supports authentication, address book, multiple POP accounts and much more!

Floppy office is a collection of small portable utilities perfect for a USB stick, and the whole collection is actually small enough to fit on a single floppy. There are at least 15 applications in it:

Quote from: Floppy Office v3.4  from http://www.xtort.net
KPad (kPad.zip) - A simple MDI Rich Text editor
(replaces Wordpad)

NPop (npop102win32_eng.zip) - A complete POP3 email client
(almost replaces Outlook Express)

Ted (tnp451re_uni.zip) - An unbelievably full featured notepad replacement which
supports unicode.(completely replaces notepad, and then some)

EVE (eve.zip)- A vector editor graphics program which can serve as a flow chart tool
(replaces MS Paint, even though Paint is a bitmap editor...)

iFtp (iftp-win32-v198.zip)- A simple FTP client
(replaces WSFTP)

110k Zipper (100ziper.exe) - A small zip/unzip utility
(almost replaces Winzip)

PDF Producer (PDFproducerExe.zip) - A simple text-PDF conversion application
(almost replaces PDF printer driver)

Spread32 (spread32.zip) -  A full-featured spreasheet program.
Version 19991112 Beta is the last free one. (almost replaces MS Excel)

MemPad (mempad.zip) - keeps little tree sytle notes with a handy index.
(handy rudimentary outliner)

RenameFiles (renamefiles_v2.42_us.zip) - a handy program for
renaming multiple files in a single step

Plus:

dsCrypt (dscrypt.exe) - An AES/Rijndael file encryption software

X-Pass (xpass.zip) - X-Pass reveals all system password fields

dsDEL (dsdel.exe) - dsDEL is a secure file deletion utility

TinyWeb Server (tinyweb.zip) - Complete web server, WWW supports MIME file typing, CGI, common log format, and multi-hosting

TinyBox (tinybox.zip) - A graphical user interface for TinyWeb Server!
There is a newer version 3.9 available but I haven't downloaded it yet.

I'm pretty sure they were false positive but I downloaded the portable apps "suite" and PCTools SpyWare Doctor went absolutely mad when I unpacked the ZIP with malware reports !

My biggest gripe with the suite is that it is too big for my USB Flash Drive so the install fails leaving those apps that were installed unusable because the final part of the installation sets up the program menu and start files.

If you really want to go portable, don't use an email client at all. Use a webmail client. Most ISPs today have one or more installed. And you can always use your a Gmail or Yahoo mail client to get to your "regular" email.

It's worth keeping an eye on the author's Web site, as MemPad is in constant development.  Many convenient new features have been added recently.

Mail2Web is another useful option for picking up your POP3 mail over the Web; it's been briefly mentioned in another DC thread
